Jack Petchey Award

Leanne has taken part in our sing and sign Makaton choir. The Makaton choir uses Makaton sign language alongside the singing of songs so that it can be enjoyed by young people with communication difficulties. As well as being a regular attender at Friday sessions Leanne has performed in front of a large audience at The Catford Broadway Theatre boosting her confidence and making us all at the school very proud.

E-Safety is a real concern for parents and not all of us are as tech savvy as our children. There are often conversations that I have with parents and pupils at the school where social media and other electronic forms of communication are causing difficulties. With this in mind please follow the link to a course that is being run by Lewisham Council E-Safety course which may be of interest. It is an online course and so if you really struggle with technology you may need to ask your children to help you access it!! I hope it is of use. Andy Taylor
